weekends

mark and i went to sleep last saturday without having dinner (we’re too ‘healthy’ anyway)
but we’re that dead tired to care about dinner
so that’s how weekends are for me

it’s one of the things that has to be given up when you have kids
especially when you’re a working mother
i think even mothers who stay at home long for weekends
weekends that you can just slack

it’s doubly hard when you’re working — out of the house for the week
because when weekends come, kids are extra hyperactive
it’s because they’re excited to have you around
no problem with being hyperactive
the problem is how i wish to just go comatose and sleep and slack and do whatever pleases you
i mean watching after my kids is fun but really how i wish i could just be me-myself-and-i mode
no kidssss running in all places, demanding things
